It seems like you are a passionate globetrotter! I'm sure you're always looking for unique trips and adventures 🌎 I might have something for you;) Join us on our surf and yoga trip, sail along the Portuguese Algarve coast. We anchor on uninhabited islands, swim and snorkel in secluded bays and sleep outside on deck under the starry sky 🙂 If you're lucky, you might even spot dolphins or whales. Guitar and ukulele are definitely on board! In addition, clean up the ocean a little on your trip and go collect garbage with us. ⛵ Don't worry - you don't have to be able to sail! You should only bring the desire for an adventure & the passion for extraordinary journeys with you 🌏 However, long fingernails and make-up have no place on board with us - so leave all the bells and whistles at home :) With us on board everyone helps and lends a hand, like in a real, small family. And if you feel like it, we'll teach you everything you need to know about sailing. 🗺️ The Algarve is the beautiful south coast of Portugal. It is a region with breathtaking beaches, high cliffs, sea caves, wonderful bays, sandy islands, picturesque fishing villages and a wonderful climate. Surrounded on two sides by the Atlantic Ocean, it is a surfer's paradise and offers some of the best surfing opportunities in Europe, with great waves to learn to surf. We are firmly convinced that it is the goosebumps moments and encounters with other people that make travel special. That is why we want to enable everyone to see the world with their own eyes. FOOTPRINT Sailing is probably the most beautiful means of transportation surrounded by wonderful nature. Above all, we pay attention to our ecological footprint when traveling. 👣 We use the wind to move, the salt water to produce our own water and use solar energy for our electricity supply. On board our boat we live completely self-sufficient and in harmony with nature. For us oceanlovers, it is extremely important not only to keep the sea clean on our travels, but also to make it even cleaner. 🌊 On our adventure trip you can connect with like-minded globetrotters and share your experiences while traveling and learn something from the others! 🚀 OUR BOAT During the whole trip we sail with a catamaran (Lagoon 380) along the Algarve coast from Faro to Lagos and every day we look for a new bay where we anchor and where it is easy to relax. YOGA AND MEDITATION In the midst of nature we will practice and meditate yoga with body, breathing and mindfulness exercises. We let ourselves be cleared, inspired and strengthened by the energies of the different places. The conscious and playful execution of the exercises in harmony with the breath will play an important role. So that you can dive deep into your body, perceive yourself and relax. In contact with yourself and in the spirit of Sinai, physical, mental and emotional tensions are released. New rooms can open up. The fascination for the moment and for the beautiful and lively can awaken. You purify and strengthen yourself from within and are given new energy, clarity and lightness. 🏄‍♂️🏄‍♀️🧗‍♀️🧗 The trip also includes a day of surfing at a local surf school. And when we have a bit of relaxation from all the action, we just go to the beach, make a campfire and explore this beautiful area, what do you think? And who are we? I'm the skipper, ben. With a buddy I sailed around the world for almost 5 years. On our trip we experienced an incredible amount, met great people and made a lot of music (we are musicians and studied sound engineers). We filmed the whole thing and our travel documentary “Blown Away” has been in German cinemas since May 21, 2019. More on www.blownaway-movie.de And I am Elena. Once on board a boat and I never left the sea. I now live with Ben on our beautiful catamaran in the most beautiful place in the world in southern Portugal. "Life is too short for someday" - I just love to live crazy, free and different and to walk a path that fulfills one. I have been working with social media for 3 years now and capture our slightly different life in photos and videos. Www.instagram.com/elenamarisa_ So be there! Together we will explore the beautiful Algarve coast, sail, surf, swim, dive, fish 🐟, do yoga 🧘‍♀, watch our new cinema documentary "Blown Away" in the outdoor boot cinema 🎬, soak up the sun☀, clean the ocean 🌊, Chat and music, music, music🎼 And when we anchor, we can make a campfire on the beach and grill our self-caught fish! Leave the car and set off on an adventure. This is what it really means to get away from it all. Are you in? 😊 Then send us a message in a bottle! :) We look forward to you!

Day 1-2

DAY 1 (Saturday) In the Marina de Olhão, our starting point for sailing, our catamaran (Lagoon 380) is already waiting for us. We'll give you a little tour of our new home, you can move into your bunks and make yourself comfortable. In the evening we cook comfortably and enjoy delicious Portuguese fish and delicious wine. Life on board is real teamwork, one of the nicest things about sailing! Nobody knows each other at the beginning, but you quickly become a well-oiled crew of explorers who stick together. You cook delicious dishes together, decide on the next route as a team and learn exciting skills from the skipper and from each other.

Portimao

Day 3-4

Portimão is the largest city in the western Algarve and has traditionally been a center for shipbuilding, sardine fishing and fish processing. Today most of this industry has been replaced by tourism, leisure and retail, making Portimão a large city with many residential areas. There is so much to see in the city. The town's old and once busy fishing docks have been responsibly transformed into a picturesque promenade. Praia da Rocha is a beautiful beach, perfect for a little yoga and if we're lucky the waves are big enough for surfing too!

Day 4-5

Alvor is one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the Algarve and the ideal destination if you want to spend a relaxing day on the beach. Historically, Alvor was a fortified city and a fishing port. The city lies on the banks of the Alvor Estuary, overlooking the protected marshland of the Ria de Alvor nature reserve, while to the south is Praia do Alvor, one of the largest sandy beaches in the Algarve. Alvor is a delightful town with a typically Portuguese appearance. There are traditional whitewashed houses, narrow cobblestone streets, and small fishing boats that stop on the banks of the river.
